BRINNON, Wash. (AP) - An emergency management official says firefighters have rescued eight people from two homes in the small Washington community of Brinnon on Hood Canal after they were trapped by rising waters from a nearby river.

The Peninsula Daily News reports (https://is.gd/S7EtYo ) that Jefferson County Emergency Management Deputy Director Keppie Kepplinger says fire crews evacuated a family of five from one home Wednesday evening and another family of three as well.

She says others may have left their homes but did not need rescue.

The newspaper says two days of heavy rain also flooded the Brinnon Fire Department.

The town is about 25 miles west of Seattle.
